My shoe purchases for October pushed me way outside my budget.  With the onset of cooler weather though, I just can't help but to stock up on some boots and fun colored pumps.  The other clothing purchases weren't too pricey, and I'm actually really happy about the jackets and vests I was able to my wardrobe to help me successfully layer into the cold weather months. 

For November, I'm going to try and recover from my excessive spending in October to put myself back in the black.  This will actually be the first year where I won't be doing any Black Friday shopping as I will be in El Paso with Adrian's family for Thanksgiving.  Although I will miss my annual tradition of hitting the outlet malls at midnight, it will hopefully be a savior for my wallet.  Now I just gotta put a strict lock-down on shopping for the rest of the month.  :)

  1. oh! what a cool YSL arty dupe. i didn't even notice that. (love your nail polish with the first one especially)

  2. love the white top and the leopard pumps!

  3. Love the way you do monthly recap. No Black Friday shopping though? :)  

  4. i doubt i'll be able to go Black Friday shopping since I'll be in El Paso with Adrian's huge Mexican family. They don't really do any shopping and I'll be car-less... better for my wallet anyways. :)

  5. What a great buy on the H&M Striped Sweater!

  6. oh my god, I wish I could stock up on pumps for cooler weather! again, jealous of the weather!
    I am loving that scalloped h&m jacket. wish I was your size!

  7. I LOVE that Limited scarf! Great buys!
